Prediagnostic Leptin, Adiponectin, C-Reactive Protein, and the Risk of Postmenopausal Breast Cancer
Obesity has been associated with an increased risk of postmenopausal breast cancer. Adipokines and systemic inflammation have been hypothesized to underlie this association. In a case–control study… Expand
Recombinant Human Interleukin 1 Receptor Antagonist in the Treatment of Patients With Sepsis Syndrome: Results From a Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial
Objective. —To further define the safety and efficacy of recombinant human interleukin 1 receptor antagonist (rhIL-1ra) in the treatment of sepsis syndrome. Study Design. —Randomized, double-blind,… Expand
Dietary fat and prostate cancer: current status.
Efforts to elucidate the causes of prostate cancer have met with little success to date. All that is known with certainty is that the incidence increases exponentially with age, varies by geography… Expand

Background: Because immune dysfunction is thought to underlie the development of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), obesity and chronic inflammation may be involved in its etiology. We examined the… Expand
Carotenoids enhance gap junctional communication and inhibit lipid peroxidation in C3H/10T1/2 cells: relationship to their cancer chemopreventive action.
We have previously demonstrated that diverse carotenoids inhibit chemically induced neoplastic transformation in 10T1/2 cells. To address their mechanism of action, the effects of six diverse… Expand

Plasma samples were collected at monthly intervals for a period of 1 year from a group of healthy nonsmoking men and women (n = 21) living in Honolulu, HI. Analysis of plasma cholesterol and… Expand
The nitration product 5-nitro-gamma-tocopherol is increased in the Alzheimer brain.
Oxidative stress and quasi-inflammatory processes recently have been recognized as contributing factors in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Reactive nitrating species have specifically… Expand
